whole wheat nut bread with a KitchenAid stand mixer

I haven't posted about bread for awhile, but that does not mean we haven't been baking and eating it. Because we are really missing my old income, we are on the thrifty grocery plan (Just don't buy anything!). Bread helps keep tummies from rumbling.

Anyway, here is our new favorite.

Whole Wheat Nut Bread

2 C tepid water
4 t walnut oil or any other nut oil or olive oil
4 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C chopped walnuts or pecans
3 T gluten flour
4 T total of any combination of the following: flaxseeds, wheat germ, wheat bran
1 ½ t sugar
1 t salt
1 ¼ t bread-machine yeast

Put ingredients into your stand mixer and run mixer on low for 20 minutes. Pull the dough off the hook and out of bowl (I just balance it in one hand for a minute). Flour inside of bowl and return dough to bowl; leave bread hook in place.

Let dough rise until double (about 2 hours) and then pop the bread hook back into the bowl. Knead for 4 minutes.

T
urn oven on to 425-450 and put the empty bread-oven into the oven to preheat.

L
et dough rise until double (about 20-40 minutes) and then put the dough into the hot bread-oven.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when thumped.

I love to bake but bread is in its own bake-o-sphere...and it's scary. And, I don't have a stand mixer.

Poor, Kate!

I love the term bake-o-sphere. You are clever even while feverish.

I didn't bother with breadmaker before I had a stand mixer. Too lazy.
